    Today marks the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. And I see that the Revisionists have taken the opportunity to rewrite history again.Yes, the same people who rewrote the history of WWII, giving the victory to Stalin rather than the American led Allies (and the H-bomb whose name we dare not mention), are back. This time they have handed credit for the fall of the Berlin Wall not to the policies of Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher and Pope John Paul XXIII butt rather to Mikhail Gorbachev.Gorby smooches East Berlin leader Erich HoneckerOkay, I see how you can...

    –Is that you can’t see it for the present. In the context of the tenth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989, one journalist took the time to look back and see what the pundits said would happen next.

    Barack Obama doesn't have a mandate for his global warming policies. He doesn't even have a mandate from his most fervent supporters.Last month, President-elect Obama promised to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020 — approximately a 16% cut — and then to cut them an additional 80% by 2050. That's a 68% cut from today's levels and would mean trimming U.S. carbon emissions to roughly where they were in 1905. Think about 1905 for a minute. There were just 77,988 registered vehicles in the U.S., compared to over 250 million today — or just one vehicle...
